We're kind of going through that now with Spock who has a bad tear in his Achilles. They want to have him in a small leg brace after a few weeks being wrapped up. But it bothers him, and the skin got really bad under it so now he's in a cone. If he was a horse he would be kept in a stall. I think we will try short periods of using the brace with enough time to give it air when we are around to watch.

Wattle's leg was the first time I had seen the external bracing. It was held into the bone with pins. He actually had it on both back legs - one broken and one with the tendons torn to shit. Unfortunately I caught him heading across the street yesterday. We don't have a lot of traffic but it's a route for the oversize trucks and the way to the Stock  Exchange so there are livestock and other trucks all the time. 

We took down the routes to the highest perches after Wattle gained his freedom and made sure he had an easier way up to his food cart. But it is hard to keep them from doing further damage. I wish you well.

He looks a lot like our Clyde that we rescued from the vet.  He got in a tussle with a raccoon that tried to disembowel him.  Luckily the vet stitched up his belly flap and was able to save him.
